THE World Environment Day competition for National Capital District schools was launched yesterday.
Steamships had selected 20 schools to take part in three competitions that will end with the awards presentation on World Environment Day celebrations on June 5.
Steamships has three competitions for the NCD primary and secondary schools. They are an essay competition, a debate competition and clean school competition.
Essay and debate competitions will be based on climate change and its effects.
The cleaning competition will be assessed on theme related activities – classroom health, energy efficiency, energy efficiency, waste management and housekeeping.
Steamships Trading Company finance director Sean Pelling said: “We initiated the idea of schools competitions because we felt that the yearly World Environment Day had to be understood and instilled in young schoolchildren.
“Steamships firmly believes that environmental education is one of the most effective ways to ensure that principles of environment sustainability are understood and adopted for future generations.
“We want our young children to be aware of the impact of our actions on the environment so they can make better choices in the future.”
Pelling said the competitions were based on this year’s theme “Raise your voices, not the sea level.”
